Will I be assigned an advisor, and will I be able to communicate with that person on a regular basis?

When you matriculate (become a degree-seeking student) at Empire State College, you are assigned a mentor who will work with you throughout your program at Empire State College. You will have regular contact with your mentor through whatever means is most convenient to you - mail, phone, fax or e-mail. If you are taking courses as a non-matriculated student, you will have access to our on-call or first-term advisor, as needed, for help with choosing courses from term to term, or deciding on a direction or area of study should you decide to matriculate.
